My husband and I go to the Basque Cultural Center at least 4 times a year - always a wonderful experience. They have delicious food from Soup, Salad to Main entrée. A nice homey atmosphere that I really like. Can't go wrong going to Basque.

We had lunch here with a big group.... It all worked out. I do have to say, the rolls they served were great. Seemed really fresh. The staff was helpful. The place was clean. The food wasn't too bad. We tried the salmon dish. Plenty of parking..

I have yet to have a bad meal here. Lunch, or dinner, the food is always great. Especially their salad dressing, and their soups. Service is always great, and attentive, even if the place is crowded, which it usually is.

A great place to celebrate with friends or family. Food is served family style with a different choice each night or you can choose individually off the large menu.

We had a Post Office Reunion luncheon in one of their small banquet rooms. The venue was outstanding, the service was excellent and the food was superb. There were 22 people in our group and they handle the luncheon service with great efficiency. Everyone got their order prepared to perfection and were very satisfied with the quality of the food...

This restaurant appears to be the offshoot of a functioning Basque cultural center that serves a Basque community in the Bay Area. The concept is amazing-- if they can sort out the problems this place could be a must-visit. Basically there were three problems. One related to the transparency of their policies, one related to service and the last related... More
